Things to know about this game:
- Stro is unbelievable. The pen has been worked a lot, so a nice long outing from Stro would be great. But man, a complete game, damn kid! In his 9 innings of work Stro gave up 2 runs, only 1 earned, walked 1, and struck out 5. All while battling an Ump Show behind the plate.
- Most of the game was uneventful and it wasn’t until the 8th when things got exciting.
- Travis (in the 8th) and Goins (in the 9th) hit their first home run. Travis’ home run in particular was nice to see. Dude has not been great on plate so far but man that swing was beautiful. His double the next inning kinda gave me the feels that he may be snapping out of what ever his going through soon.
- Pillar hitting streak is now up to 11 games after his home run in 8th. It was fun watching Trout run his heart out for that game only to stop and look so dejected that even he could not rob Trout out of that home run.
- With this win JAYS CAN’T LOSE THE SERIES! Man, doesn’t that sound good!
